11 September 2012 – 3 January 2013
I started a second pair for my daughter but the wool ran out at the top of the hand – not enough for fingers. So it was good progress, but they are now parked waiting to be made into fingerless mittens, using the figure of eight top.
The first 16 rows of pattern on both gloves. The pattern is much easier to knit the second time and I have been able to knit while with other people, which is a big improvement. The thumb shaping has to be marked on the chart as it’s every third row without an increase. The slight difference in the thicknesses of the yarns gives a bit of texture to the fabric too. I’m also pleased with the braided edging and the way it is lying flat.
